McNeill and Okotie tied the knot during MAFS' ninth season, meeting for the first time at the altar on their wedding day: March 21, 2019.

"One year ago today … we took a leap of faith with family and friends all around us and now we're celebrating our first anniversary! Who would've thought?!" Okotie captioned a series of shots from their big day this past March. "It's been an amazing first year and looking forward to the next 100 years 😏."

"Love you @deonna.mcneill 😘😘😘! Thank you to everyone who have supported us throughout our journey!" he added. "All of the love and blessings we receive truly do mean a lot to us and we don't take it for granted!"

"Happy 1 year anniversary to my love!!" McNeill wrote alongside a similar post. "I can't believe that this was the day we met and said 'I do'. This was such an amazing day and as I think back over the last year, it has been full of so many blessings! I can't wait to celebrate many, many more with you! Love you Hubbs!"

Okotie and McNeill are the latest Couples Cam pair to announce their pregnancy. In late July, season 5's Anthony D'Amico and Ashley Petta revealed they are expecting their second child to join 19-month-old daughter Mila Rose.

Danielle Bergman and Bobby Dodd are also expecting their second child together, the season 7 stars announced on Couples Cam in June. The mom-to-be revealed on Instagram that their baby is due in January, going on to share in early August that they are expecting a son.

"We are so blessed and lucky to be able to announce that we are able to grow our family by one more," Bergman told PEOPLE of their exciting news, adding that their 18-month-old daughter Olivia Nicole "has changed our lives in so many positive ways and we can't wait to be able to give her a sibling."

Married At First Sight: Couples Cam, produced by Kinetic Content, airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on Lifetime.
